Re: Is my GCC overeating? I知 scared he might get obese

I was just re-reading this and...this jumped out, maybe you mis-wrote it.

"nobody at my home is able to do one feeding during the day. Should I try a feeding schedule, or should I not be worried about Patrick over eating?"

Leave food out!!!!!! birds have small stomachs, they peace meal throughout the day....snack here, snack there... If he's gorging himself....it might because of whatever arbitrary schedule you came up with.

Let the bird manage his intake, he will be fine!

Re: Is my GCC overeating? I知 scared he might get obese

good point by clark there

I'm theo nly person where I live and I work for 9 hours day, I would just leave the dry foods out when I left and replaced with fresh when I got back. If he wanted to moisten them he would dunk in the water which I would change when I got back. Very rarely will a bird eat so much they became fat when on a healthy diet. It's when left with just fatty seeds they will get fat
